  1. 1. DAPPER IN DIAPERS
  2. 2. Executive Summary ! 1 ThredUp is an online consignment store that sells clothing for women and children, and strives to make consumers’ shopping experience as easy as possible by allowing customers to buy and sell clothing without leaving their home. The majority of ThredUp’s consumer group consists of white females, ages 45-54, who are married with 2-3 children. The most important things in her life consist of her family, fashion, and keeping up with trends on a budget. ThredUp is perfect for this consumer group because it allows them to indulge without spending too much. Our consumer group does not typically use consignment shops, but seemed very open to the idea. ThredUp can take advantage of this willingness to try new things by making themselves the superior business in their market and using social media to give them a competitive advantage. ThredUP is not the only contender in the online resale market. ThredUp is currently being threatened by similar websites and applications, and needs to establish its dominance. ThredUp also wants to increase sales and consignments in the “Boys” and “Girls” department by 20% in four months time, so we have created a campaign that will do just that. In brief, our campaign consists of four holiday photo-sharing contests that allow customers to reflect in a heartfelt and sincere way while also promoting the brand. Our low-cost, but effective, campaign plan allows us to utilize social media to improve interaction with current customers, create relationships with new ones, and keep everyone engaged in the campaign at all times.

  4. 4. Introduction 2 The client that we have conducted extensive research on and planned a campaign for is a company called ThredUp. ThredUp is an online consignment shop that allows customers to buy and sell gently used clothing without ever leaving their door. ThredUp strives to make shopping experiences for their customers easy and guilt-free. ThredUp’s consumer group, who we discovered through our research, consists mainly of Caucasian females, ages 45-54, who are married and have 2-3 children. They are interested in fashion and love to dress their children in current trends, but they are also conscious of their family’s spending habits. Their main priority is always to provide the best they can to their family, even if it means making sacrificing spending on themselves. This particular consumer group should be important to ThredUp because our consumer group could really benefit from the products and services offered by the company. . She is extremely busy and needs a one- stop-shop where she can get nice things for a discounted price, effortlessly. In the following creative brief, we will present to you the most important findings in our primary and secondary research that led us to discover the demographics, psychographics, and media use studies. We will present to you a Brand Report, which takes you even deeper into our consumer group, our brand, and how they work together later in our campaign. The last part of our creative brief is a campaign strategy that we created, based on what we feel will be greatly successful, which is derived from our research and comprehensive studies about our consumer group and ThredUp as a brand.
  5. 5. Part One – Consumer Report 3 Demographics After analyzing data regarding parental spending habits in the particular market of children’s clothing, many conclusions about consumer group demographics can be drawn. Five basic demographics of this consumer group are income, gender, age, marital status, and race. These are important aspects to consider when creating an advertising campaign because they help advertisers better understand their audience and formulate a successful strategy for advertising. Some of the demographics were obtained through a Google Forms survey that was distributed among parents on Facebook. Of the over 180 responses, we were able to use specific answers that classified our consumer group. A consumer’s yearly income makes up a large demographic in the children’s clothing industry. In the children and infant clothing store industry, people with an income of over $100,000 a year make up the largest part of the market at 36.6 percent. Families that make $80,000-$100,000 are 23.8 percent of the market. The lowest market segment is families that make less than $70,000 with 14.4 percent (Haider, 2015). The general trend is the higher the yearly salary; the more likely they are to spend money in the children and infant clothing store industry. The majority of our consumer group is people who identify as female. In the survey, 91.6% of responses that qualified as a member of our consumer group identified as female, while only 8.4% identified as male (Survey, 2015). This could be
  6. 6. ! 4 because typically in society women are most responsible for their care of their children, and that can include shopping for and dressing them. While the age of the parents who responded varied, we found that the largest percentage of parents in our consumer group is between the ages of 45-54 years old at 59.7% (Survey, 2015). This will have to be taken into consideration, because this is a more mature audience and should be treated as such. Google Forms, 2015 A large portion of our consumer is married. When asked what their relationship status was, 90.4% responded and said they were currently married. This may potentially mean that there is communication involved in how their children are
  7. 7. ! 5 dressed, and both parents probably have to approve the amount of money spent and even outfits that their children wear. There were variations in response, but our target consumer is most likely to have 2 or 3 children. Parents with 2 or 3 children make up for 85% of our survey respondents (Survey, 2015). This makes sense, because the more children one has, the more one must spend on expenses, and 2 or 3 children would not cost as much, therefore the budget to buy designer clothes for them may be larger. The most important demographic is marital status. While the primary consumer in our market is female, being married means there is communication between partners on things such as budgets and what their children look like, so we have to imagine a married couple making decisions as a partnership, and values their family as a large part in their life. Psychographics After analyzing psychographic information regarding the personality of the consumer, conclusions about the buying and spending habits of parents that dress their children in the latest fashion trends was easier to predict. These psychographics are a reflection of behaviors, values, and attitudes “Dapper In Diaper” parents use in everyday activity. These parents perhaps take time out of their day to pick out an outfit that is higher end for their child.
  8. 8. ! 6 One factor that plays into keeping children up with the latest trends is if the parents themselves are trendy and take interest in something like fashion. “Stylish and affluent parents are keen to have the best-dressed children and are willing to spend on designer brands to achieve this” (Westbrook, 2015). This study concludes that parents who are wealthy are more likely to dress their children in high-end clothing. According to the article “The Top Ten Most Stylish Mother and Daughter Pairs; My Mom the Style Icon Weighs In”, written by Sarah Ferguson in the only publication, Fashionista, “There are exceptions to every rule, but it seems style is more often than not passed down from mothers to child.” (Fashionista, 2015). Markets that are aware of this and are going after that particular demographic can campaign themselves to attract the wealthiest of consumers. From New York Fashion Week, to child models, children play a bigger role in the world of fashion than ever before. High-end fashion designers are creating lines for children which generates a whole new level of intensity for those who want their child to be the best dressed. “Many clothing retailers are extending their adult brands into the children’s sector” (Westbrook, 2015). This allows the most esteemed designers to target a whole new demographic, bringing in even more profit and attention. According to The Fashion Spot, “Diane von Furstenberg is launching a limited edition line for Gap Kids and Baby Gap in March 2012 and Target’s extensive capsule collection with Missoni, launching in September, will include items for kids and babies”
  9. 9. ! 7 (The Fashion Spot, 2011). And it doesn’t stop there, many brands are continuing to extend their lines into children’s wear and it doesn't always mean it will be pricy. When it comes to online consignment shopping, we found that our consumers do not typically and and/or sell to consignment shops, but seemed open to the idea of trying out an online consignment shop. 75.9% of respondents answered that they are more likely to try an online consignment shop than not (Survey, 2015). This is important because our consumers are open-minded and could most likely be easily prompted to try out this new experience. There are many ways shopping online could save them time and money, and making them aware of this can help increases purchases and sales. As long as the quality of clothing, which 65.9% of our consumer group said was the most important factor when buying clothes from an online consignment store, remains intact, our market within this consumer group seems to be promising (Survey, 2015). When designing a campaign plan, we must emphasize the importance of our client’s clothing quality in some sort of way so our consumers would have more positive attitudes about the brand. One interesting psychographics trend we found was our consumer group’s special interest in philanthropy and giving back to the community, especially when the cause involves children in need. While conducting our content analysis of Facebook, we found many examples of this. One example was a share involving Leah Still, daughter of Cincinnati Bengals Football Player Devon Still, and her involvement in the
  10. 10. ! 8 Rock Kids Fashion Show. All of the commenters seem to take a special interest in Leah, saying her involvement in the fashion show was brave, and set a good example for other children battling cancer. We also discovered a very high trend of celebrities getting involved in kids organizations and causes. The idea of recycling clothes not only benefits those looking for nice clothes who cannot necessarily afford them at full price, but the environment from a production standpoint. After conducting our content analysis, we feel that parents take a special interest in giving back, and knowing that they are part of cause. Google Forms, 2015 An overwhelming amount of participants agreed that they were likely to hold off buying clothes for themselves to buy clothing for their children. 46.3% of participants
  11. 11. ! 9 said they are always likely to do this. We can infer that perhaps if the clothes they were buying for their children weren’t as expensive they would be able to buy clothes for both themselves and their children more frequently. However, there is often a sense of guilt when parents spend more money on themselves than their child. The key insight about this consumer group is that nearly half (46.3%) of surveyed said that they are almost always likely to hold off buying clothing for themselves in order to buy clothing for their children. Media Use One of the most important influences on our campaign is how our consumer group uses media, and what types of media they use. The three major media outlets used by our consumer group is Facebook for social media, Pinterest for children’s clothing ideas, and adult fashion publications for themselves and their children. The first, and most popular, media outlet used by our consumer group is Facebook. In a study done by Pew Research Center estimates that approximately 73.5% of our consumer group uses social networking sites (Pew Research Center, 2014). Another study, conducted by the Media Literacy Clearing House, found that, on average, our consumer group dedicates 18.4% of their total Internet time to Facebook (Media Literacy Clearing House, 2015). To put that number into perspective, the next most popular program they dedicate their Internet time to is Pandora Radio at 4.1%,
  12. 12. ! 10 which is nearly a 14% difference. In our consumer group, the way people use the Internet is extremely valuable information because it allows us to make decisions regarding the best platform to launch our campaign. Google Forms, 2015 The second most popular media outlet used by our consumer group when searching for inspiration for their children’s clothing is Pinterest. In a study done by Statistica, experts estimates that our consumer group makes up approximately 13% of all Pinterest users (Statistica, 2015). Although our consumer group is not the largest consumer of Pinterest, it still was indicated as a popular source of outfit inspiration as indicated by our survey respondents (Survey, 2015). The popular use of Pinterest helps us to decide where to feature ThredUp’s products and services to generate the most sales.
  13. 13. ! 11 The third, and last, most popular media source used by our consumer group when searching for inspiration for their children’s clothes was adult fashion publications and blogs (Survey, 2015). This information was very insightful for our campaign for two main reasons. The first reason is because the growing use of the Internet almost made us forget about print media. We also found it odd that our consumer group uses adult magazines to influence the style of their young children. We were very shocked by that information, however, when we decided to look at it from the perspective of the advertiser on the other end of the children’s ad’s that were featured in adult fashion magazines, it started to make sense that their consumer group is probably very similar to our own, which is why they would feature that ad in the publication that they did. Our key consumer insight for media use is that Facebook is the most popular social media outlet for our consumer to use when connecting with their friends and family.
  14. 14. Part Two – Brand Report 13 Brand Description Our client is the company ThredUP, an online consignment store specializing in women's and children’s clothing. ThredUP belongs to the fashion industry, and offers up to a 90% discount on like-new clothing from various brands and designers. Not only can used clothing be bought from this company, but customers can sell their used clothing to the organization with no shipping costs and get cash for the items picked to be resold on the site. ThredUp strives to consistently bring consumers the latest fashions at low prices while keeping an inventory of thousands of garments at any given time. ThredUp also provides customers with the easiest shopping experience possible by maintaining an organized website, and offers the service through their smartphone application. Customers can use all of ThredUp’s services without having to leave their home, or interrupt their schedule. ThredUp was founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts in January of 2009 by James Reinhart, Chris Homer, and Oliver Lubin. ThredUp began selling men and women’s clothing, however the demand was low for men’s clothing so in April 2010, ThredUp began making women and children’s clothing their focus. In July of 2010, the company moved their headquarters to San Francisco. Today, ThredUp has seven different departments within their online store, their smartphone app, and significant international popularity.
  15. 15. 14 ThredUp’s currently serves a majority consumer group consisting of middle/upper middle class, Caucasian females, ages 30-50. The most common job for this woman is staying at home and tending to the needs of the family. This woman is generally the one responsible for balancing the family finances, meaning she is very conscious of the money she can and cannot spend. This woman is also likely responsible for full-time child care of her children, and spends a lot of time with them. She admits that she puts her children’s clothing and appearance before her own, but is still conscious of her budget when shopping for the latest trends. ThredUp’s goals for the future consist of further growing their business and striving to be number one among their competitors. Online consignment has becoming increasingly popular with the smartphone “boom”, so ThredUp’s main goal should not only be to remain among the top in their industry, but to become number one in it. They can achieve this in a number of ways, but the best thing ThredUp can do is to create a very strong relationship with consumers, and maintain a positive reputation as a company. They need to investigate what sets them apart from their competitors and establish a strong brand identity.
  16. 16. Benefits of the Brand 15 Emotional Benefits The emotional benefits that ThredUp provides its consumers with is an overall feeling of “Safety”. Since one of ThredUp’s main focuses and goals is to provide an easier, more affordable way to achieve style and purchase designer brand names, the consumer can always count on a “guilt-free” shopping experience with ThredUp. Since our consumer group makes their children’s clothing a priority, but also their spending habits and personal finances a priority, ThredUp can allow people to shop for current trends without having to decide which of those priorities is more important to them. ThredUp allows our consumer group to feel smart when they shop. Rational Benefits There are many rational benefits that ThredUp’s service provides, and of those benefits, most of them center on giving consumers maximum bang for their buck. ThredUp offers discounted prices for gently worn items, allowing the consumer to save money, but look like they spent a lot. The company also has an inventory of thousands of items in seven departments, there is always something for everyone - no matter what your personal style is. This allows the consumer to have endless variety and options when picking out clothes. Lastly, one of the most exciting services ThredUp provides is the capability for consumers to not only shop on their site, but also to sell their own clothes on the site, and make some money. ThredUp has many rational benefits for people that are trying to save money, and even make money.
  17. 17. Brand Personification 16 Brand Archetype The best-fitting brand archetype for ThredUp is, “THE REGULAR GUY/GAL”. The Regular Guy/Gal is the best fit when taking all aspects of the brand into consideration. The first word used to describe The Regular Guy/Gal is “belonging”. The need to belong was an obvious concern while conducting our survey. Although the concern ranged in severity from parents who care very little about what their kids wore, to parents who believe that their children’s appearance is a direct reflection of who they are as a parent, but most of the participants were somewhere in the middle. Either way, the sense of belonging is a priority for our consumer group. One could also say that because. The second word used to describe The Regular Guy/Gal is “Utility”, meaning: the state of being useful, profitable, or beneficial. One of ThredUp’s major selling points is the idea of a mutually beneficial transaction between them and consumer. Consumers benefit from buying discounted designer clothing, and by receiving money for selling their gently worn clothing – in exchange, ThredUp gets new inventory to sell to another customer. The third word used to describe The Regular Guy/Gal is “dependability”. ThredUp is a company in which its consumers depend on them to deliver on their promises. Consumers depend on the fact that ThredUp sells popular designer pieces for discounted prices. The consumer also depends on the fact that ThredUp will try to sell their clothes so that they can make money. “The Regular Guy” is the best fitting brand archetype for ThredUp because of its need to belong,
  18. 18. ! 17 the tendency to be utilized, and the constant dependability from others. Brand as a Voice The brand voice of ThredUp is friendly, positive, outgoing, and professional. A consumer’s experience using ThredUp should be an enjoyable one, since you are shopping for clothes, so the brand voice is positive, friendly, and outgoing. Although the experience using ThredUp should be fun, there is still an element of professionalism and business needed in the brand’s voice. Because our brand deals so closely with the exchange of money, the brand still has a professional and stern, yet warm voice that is inviting, but strong. !
  19. 19. Competitive Set 19 The direct competitors of ThredUp are Vinted, Tradesy, Poshmark, Threadflip, Kidizen, and TotSpot. Kidizen and Totspot are also direct competitors because they sell children’s clothing, which is a very popular category at ThredUp, they both have applications that are free to download, both allow you to resell your gently worn clothing, and buy designer kids clothing at discounted prices. Vinted, Tradesy, Poshmark, and Threadflip are direct competitors because, like ThredUp, they sell women’s clothing, they operate through free smartphone applications, they allow you to resell your clothing, and they sell designer merchandise at a discounted price. Other competitors include Once Upon a Child, a children’s consignment shop, but it is not a direct competitor because it does not operate through an application or website. One of the opportunities ThredUp has is they stand out from competitors. ThredUp stands out from competitors by being the only online consignment store that offers both women and children’s clothing. ThredUp’s competitors offer women’s clothing OR children’s clothing, but not both. ThredUP’s other online competitors have clothes that are sold through profiles set up through their users, and allow their users to name the price and post pictures of the item. ThredUp is an online consignment shop, which means items have to go through quality control before being put on sale, people are making sure these items are fit to be resold. Through individual buyers and sellers, quality may not be as easily guaranteed.
  20. 20. 20 ThredUp also has the opportunity to create a very strong brand identity, and work to establish a very positive brand reputation and relationship with consumers and the public. ThredUp should also consider being more interactive with their consumer, such as putting up a weekly podcast of fashion advice from headquarters. One of their common complaints in review sessions is that One ThredUp’s weaknesses is that the pictures of the garments are unsteamed, wrinkled, and sloppy looking. Vinted and Poshmark have really great pictures and displays of their clothes, so that is something that our competitor does better than us. Another weakness that ThredUp has is that, although the smartphone application looks really good, the website could use a makeover. The website is very black-and-white, and while the homepage is very colorful, once you actually begin shopping there could be more color, design, and interaction!

  23. 23. Part Three - Campaign Strategy 23 Campaign Overview ThredUp is a family-oriented business. As a company they try to make it an ongoing goal to incorporate not only adults but children’s clothing. ThredUp wants to be seen as the one-stop-shop to get everything your kids need, and maybe even a little something for yourself to indulge in. In addition to family being a value held by ThredUp, our consumer group also has a major focus on family, some of them even having full-time jobs that are dedicated to managing their family's affairs. Because ThredUp and our consumer group both share the priority and value of “family”, we simply couldn’t justifying straying away from such a strong, shared interest that is very relatable and universal, so the inspiration behind our campaign, was of course, “family”. “Capture Your Kin: Giving Reason to the Holiday Season” Our campaign, “Capture Your Kin”, is a holiday season campaign made up of four photo contests that take place once a month from October to January. The photos will feature the children of our consumer group. Each contest has a different theme in accordance with the holidays. Contestants must dress their children in at least one purchase from ThredUp, keeping each monthly theme in mind . The contestants also must answer a prompt that ThredUp will invite participants to answer. The winner of each contest will be decided based on the number of shares the post receives, the
  24. 24. ! 24 number of likes received, and how well they followed directions (people who don’t follow all directions will be disqualified). The winner of each contest will receive a $1,000.00 gift certificate to Target, and 50% off all ThredUp orders for a year (maximum of one order a month). We are fully confident that this campaign will be a success in raising sales in the “Boys” and “Girls” departments of ThredUp, by 20% in 4 months, because our research, indicates that above every other aspect in life, including: saving money, budgeting, and dressing their children in the latest trends, the most important thing in the life of our consumer group is their family; and family is what “Capture Your Kin” is all about, making the holiday’s the perfect time to pitch this campaign. For a company who has been established just over five years, ThredUp has become a very well known consignment website and mobile phone application, now used by people nationwide, but even the most successful companies don’t stop once they’ve reach their goals; instead, they continue to set higher ones. The goal, in which our campaign promises to achieve for ThredUp, is to increase the buying and selling of clothes in the “Boys” and “Girls” departments. This goal is essential to the continued growth of ThredUp, and should be a main concern to the company since providing both women’s and children’s clothing is a huge feature that the company provides, making the shopping experience easier by giving consumers the ability to make several purchases in one
  25. 25. ! 25 spot. Objective of the Campaign The main objective of this campaign is to increase the sales made in the “Boys” and “Girls” departments of ThredUp by a combined 20% total in four months time. In order to increase the overall sales in the children’s clothing departments at ThredUp, we must target the consumer group responsible for these purchases: married Caucasian mothers, ages 45- 54. In our secondary research we found that the most important thing in this consumer groups’ life is their family. Emphasis put on the theme of “family” in “Capture Your Kin” will cause mothers to create an emotional relation to the campaign and spread it around social media like wildfire. By spreading the campaign around the Internet, awareness for ThredUp increases, meaning that sales and consignments increase. This makes us fully confident that this campaign objective will help us reach our overall goal. Campaign Strategy The name, “Capture Your Kin”, was inspired by the idea of consumers documenting their children’s holiday experiences through photographs and writing prompts. The campaign allows our consumer group, not only to compete to win a prize, but also to share their Holiday Season adventures with their friends via social media.
  26. 26. ! 26 The campaign is structured over a four-month period, October through January, during the Holiday Season. Every month ThredUp will release a challenge that incorporates the specific holiday that occurs during said month. The release will include the dates for the submission deadline and the date that the monthly winner will be announced. The challenge will include picture directions and a writing prompt that encourages participants to be interactive with not only friends, family, and fellow contestants, but also with ThredUp as a company. Each contestant photograph will be required to feature one (per child) garment that they purchased through ThredUp, and will be required to provide the specific garment and designer/brand in the prompt. Requiring participants to purchase and feature an item from ThredUp is not what will increase sales. Naming the garment, the specific designer/brand, and where the item was purchased from (ThredUp) will help to generate sales by encouraging friends and followers to check the company out for themselves. This is an indirect, but brilliant form of “word of mouth” for the company, which is how we raise sales. Another task accomplished in this campaign is spreading out ThredUp’s social media coverage. Currently, ThredUp’s social media press is limited mostly to Facebook, however, the competition will take place on both Facebook and Instagram, encouraging social media growth. The winner of each challenge will receive a $1,000 dollar gift certificate to
  27. 27. ! 27 Target, a collaborating partner of ThredUp, as well as 50% off all ThredUp orders for a year, with a twelve order maximum. Target is a great option to include in this project because, Target receives press, ThredUp receives press, and winners get a large gift certificate to one of the biggest retailers in the country. Our hope is that Target will either partner with ThredUp on this project and pay for the gift certificates entirely, but if not, we are hoping they are at least willing to split the cost with us 50/50. The winner is selected based on the number of shares and the number of likes combined. The contestant with the highest number wins. There are so many reasons that this campaign is great. For starters, ThredUp has to contribute very little work to the project. The press coverage is done entirely by the contestants through likes and shares. The high number incentive to share the post encourages contestants to blast their post to their friends, who will blast it to their friends, and so on. Another reason that this campaign is awesome is because it is a wonderful example of Guerilla Marketing, meaning that it is low-cost and untraditional advertising. This campaign should cost ThredUp a maximum total of $4,000 dollars, and in the advertising world, that is pocket change for a company to spend on a campaign. This campaign will work because it gives the consumer’s power without them even realizing it. ThredUp is able to put in minimal work and minimal funds on this project, and the campaign thrives on the best marketing tactic in the game – word
  28. 28. ! 28 of mouth. Campaign Tactics The first tactic we will use in our campaign is beginning the advertising process in early September for the contest. People need to know in advance that the contest is taking place so that we can gain as many participants as possible. The more participants we have, the more ThredUp will be shared. In the month of September, our main focus, in regards to preparation for “Capture Your Kin”, needs to be on gaining maximum exposure for the campaign. Without taking this necessary step the campaign will fail. The main places we will advertise is through ThredUp’s homepage on the website and all of ThredUp’s social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). Other places we plan to advertise is through the ThredUp email list, and placing ad’s on the website’s checkout page. The second tactic we will use is recruiting influential social media leaders. These will include Instagram leaders, including Katie Ellison (@mummydaddyme), Fritha Strickland (@tigerlillyquinn), and Courtney Adamo (@courtneyadamo) (Morgan, 2015). We will also recruit popular mommy blogs, including minutesofmotherhood.com, not- your-average- mom.com, and jigsawparenting.com (topmommyblog, 2015). Lastly we will recruit the top YouTube channels that are dedicated to parenting, including WhatsUpMoms, The Mom’s View, and Story of This Life (Iderstine, 2015). These days
  29. 29. ! 29 it’s rare to be able to watch a YouTube video without hearing someone promote some sort of product, business, service, or contest. It’s also become a common thing for famous Instagram users to promote services and products through pictures, and of course, collaborating with a blog is a tried- and-true method to getting your message out. People listen, watch and read these media sources religiously and many viewers truly look up to those who run them, use them for daily inspiration and advice, and have trust in the information they are conveying (Youth Research Center, 2015). Using this tactic would greatly increase the number of participants for the campaign. Campaign Evaluations Like in any advertising campaign, there needs to be a way to measure its success, and be able to tell whether or not it was your campaign that caused the success or if an external force caused it. FIrst of all, ThredUp will monitor to see if we reach our objective of increasing sales by 20% by looking at their monthly sale records, to see if their sales are increasing, and also monitor the amount of clothes being sent in for resale. While this may sound like the only way to measure our campaign’s success, it is important to to keep in mind that while all sales increases are beneficial to thredUP, we have know whether or not these sales can be attributed to our campaign specifically. The first evaluation method we have created is a beneficial to all parties involved
  30. 30. ! 30 because it will cost the company little to no-money to collect information, it is discreet among customers, it generates additional press for ThredUp, and it gives the customer a chance to save money. Whether the consumer participated in the “Capture Your Kin” holiday contest series or not, every customer is eligible for a 10% off discount. We will market consistently throughout the campaign, informing everyone that they can receive a 10% discount on holiday orders if they tweet/post the monthly hashtag to ThredUp’s twitter or Facebook accounts. The interesting part about this particular evaluation method is that no one on ThredUp’s end will actually be tracking the tweets and sending out coupons. There is simply no way to track and manage that system efficiently, and hiring an external server or software system to track the information is extremely expensive and unnecessary. Instead, ThredUp will provide a promotional drop down menu on the home pages of all current account holders, in addition to new account holders, that says “Capture Your Kin” Promotion”. The consumer will then select the discount and the purchase will be recorded in the original server database, where ThredUp will be able to see how exactly, each customer ended up on the website. Some precautions that need to be taken to make the results as accurate as possible, is first by making sure that the only way that the customer can receive the coupon is through their own account portal (they cannot print it off or use someone else’s) and they have to make a purchase for the coupon to be valid. On the promotional drop down menu, we also need to make a few other links and options
  31. 31. ! 31 available to select from. If the customer is forced to scroll through a longer list of specific coupons and promotions and still selects “Capture Your Kin” the results will be much more accurate than making our campaign coupon the only one able to be selected. The second evaluation method we will use to measure our progress and success in the campaign is by assigning exclusive codes to our involved partnerships. These include collaborations with YouTube accounts, Instagram users, and bloggers. Each collaborator will inform their audience about the discount code and the same basic steps will apply as previously stated in the first evaluation method. To receive the discount or use the code new customers will have to create an account and once they enter their portal they will have access to a promotional drop down menu. The user will select the option with the collaborators name or code and will then receive the discount, which will be tracked through ThredUp’s system. If sales are not increasing at the rate necessary, or sales are not being attributed to the campaign strategy through the above stated methods, then adjustments to the campaign will have to be made. !
  32. 32. ! 32 Conclusion ThredUP is a growing company with a promising future. As a team we have all become very passionate about their success in the online consignment field and feel they have the potential to set themselves apart from their competition through our campaign. Once they have a strong brand, their competition will struggle to keep up with them. Our consumer group, made up primarily of married women with 2-3 children. This consumer uses media primarily in the form of Facebook and Pinterest. They are willing to sacrifice spending on themselves in order to make sure their kids get the best they can. Through ThredUp, these women can still keep their children looking good without having to sacrifice their personal style. Our campaign will work not only because it allows consumers to interact with the company and spread ThredUP’s name through word of mouth, but it also tugs on the consumer’s heartstrings. It is a campaign that is very budget-friendly. Most everyone values family and relationships over everything else, it is an easy concept to relate to.
